God is three persons in one: the Father, who created and sustains the world; the Son, who lived as a
human being, died, and rose from the dead; and the Holy Spirit who works God's will in the world.
The Bible is the infallible word of God, spoken through human writers. It is the
sole authority, guide and standard for all that we do. (2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Sin exists in every person. It is the cause of the bad things people do to each other. (Romans 5:12, 18-19)
Everyone will have existence after death - either in heaven or hell - forever and without end.
God has a plan to end the world, when He will judge everyone - both the living and the dead. (Matthew 25:31-46)
We believe in the sign of the cross. It is a symbol used by all Christians. The cross symbolizes the terrible death that Jesus suffered as punishment for our sins. The empty cross is a symbol of Jesus' victory over sin and death. (Colossians 2:13-15)
WE BELIEVE IN
Grace alone - God loved the world, though we do not deserve His love.
He sent His Son to love the unlovely and save the ungodly. (Ephesians 2:8-10)
Faith alone - Jesus has provided for our forgiveness and life; those who hear this promise and believe it,
have what it offers. People don't "get" faith; God gives it as He gives us His promises. (Romans 1:16-17)
Scripture alone - The Bible is the only source that shows God's will and the only basis for faith. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
WE BELIEVE THAT
Baptism (for children and adults) and Communion are a means by which God gives people His grace.
The Bible never says God’s promises only hold true for adults or for those who are able to understand.
Our right standing with God does not depend on our decision to come to Him,
but rather on His coming to us. (Acts 2:38-39; Matthew 26:26-28)
God is loving and that He offers forgiveness and eternal life as a
free gift because of Jesus Christ. Salvation Is a free gift.
We believe that no matter how hard we try, we cannot earn God's forgiveness or a place in heaven.
It is a free gift we receive only through faith in Jesus Christ. (Galatians 2:15-21)
